Thanks for the videos Jonny  [thumbs up]

Just signed up as I've been looking for ideas on building a unit to house the drawers I bought last  October from FFX & have only just got round to doing something with  [embarassed]

Cheers.

Jonathan:  Thanks for the VERY helpful videos and the SketchUp model.  I just got my two sets of Sys-AZ drawers yesterday and am hoping to build two Sysport cabinets this weekend that will have a detachable countertop in between them for a miter saw and room for another rolling cabinet or a shop vac underneath.  I will be using 18mm plywood and had a rough draft drawn out in SketchUp (see attached screenshot).  For the middle divider, I was going to drill the shelf pin holes all the way through, but I just I remembered a comment in your first video (at the 8:45 mark) noting the required 13mm depth for the shelf pin holes and suggesting doubling up on the divider width.  On your SketchUp model, you do show a single divider of 18mm plywood.  I am wondering if, after installing your drawers, you determined that a single piece of 18mm would be sufficient.  Thanks!

Very timely question for me.  I'm working on my MFT cart with matching sysport now.  How do you install drawer slides at the same height in side by side bays using the 32mm system with just one 18mm or 3/4" thick vertical divider?  Won't the drawer slide screws interfere with each other?

I believe, in one video, he referenced grinding them shorter so they would not hit each other.

If the supplied screws are Euroscrews then it is possible to get them (certainly in the UK) about 10 mm in length. That should mean that by the time the thickness of the runner is taken into account they should just miss each other in the middle of 19 mm wood.

I use 6.3mm x 10mm pozi screws from Woodworker's Hardware for this purpose.

You could always utilise some of the other screw holes in the runners & so off set the screws thus preventing them meeting & then you would get away with using only a single piece of 18mm sheet material as a divider, or even slightly thinner. I used 16mm stock

Thanks for the suggestions.  I was not familiar with the screws but your comments made more sense after I unpacked one of the Sys-AZ drawers and actually looked at the Festool screws.  I managed to find a store here that had 20 of the 6.3 x 10mm screws in stock that I can use to start this weekend, and I will order some more.
